Victim's of Toxic Mold

Victim's of Toxic Mold

We are all across the country. Myself, not having a choice but to live in the nightmare has taken my life to destruction. Landlords have a choice whether to remediate the inhabitable home you had chose to live in. Landlords did not tell me that I was moving into an unsafe, unhealthy apartment that would turn my life and physical health into destruction. Denial is a serious issue as we all know to well. Why don't landlord's have to seek professional help when they are in denial? They are human just as we are, but are not faced with professionals telling them the toxic mold that you claim is affecting your health does not exist even though proven.

Many of us have nowhere to turn. There are so many victim's that will lose hope and simply give up. This does not need to happen. I couldn't imagine my children or grandchildren or any of my loved ones living the toxic illness nightmare that I am and have been faced with for over one year. Toxic molds and/or mycotoxins can cause death. There are children that will suffer or die from toxic mold because molds do not discriminate, they attack anyone, at any given time.

How many have to die before the truth comes out? People all over this country are losing their homes, health and careers due to toxic mold.

I do know that everyone has a purpose in life, and my purpose is to include working to educate people about the adverse effects of toxic mold while trying to give them hope, courage and inspiration for us to get the untold truths regarding toxic molds that attack our bodies and to be instrumental in getting laws incorporated that will give us the medical and financial assistance that so many of us deserve.

I feel that the liable parties (landlords, building owners, etc.) should be held responsible for their lack of action. This is why we all must work together for the good of all the mold victim's involved. Get our stories out into the public and political sectors of how our lives's have been destroyed by toxins from our homes, workplace, or schools. Write to the "Letter to the Editor" of our local paper, call our state reps, write to congress, report any signs of molds and illness to local boards of health and state board of health, write to the CDC, the EPA make them listen that we all do exist. They need to be told we are taking a stand for what we believe in, we are speaking out. Don't take no for an answer, even if they say they don't handle this type of issue. If we have enough victim's telling our tragic life since affected by molds, then they might start listening to us. People in numbers is what makes the difference, this is why we need all of us to speak out. Enough is Enough.....I don't want to die, do you or your loved one

I thank everyone out there that is taking a stand for all mold victims. Molds cause very real diseases that are debilitating and this needs to be recognized. There are physicians who publicly support us all, and I appreciate this from the bottom of my heart. For those in the medical fields that are dis-believers and choose to ignore our illnesses from these toxins, please listen to us, and learn from us.

I am not living this way for the recognition for myself, I do not have a choice. I don't enjoy seeing my children watch me deteriorate before their eyes, I do not enjoy that I am to ill to play with my grandchildren, or have them spend the night with their grandma that has to breath from oxygen.

I watch all of my dreams, and ways of life become a toxic nightmare.

Please, LISTEN to what we are saying.........
We need medical professionals, government agencies, insurance companies, media, politicians along with those friends and family members that disbelieve the truths of how ill we are from these toxins, OPEN THEIR EYES AND LISTEN WITH THEIR EARS, MOST OF ALL GAIN KNOWLEDGE. Please take the time to learn about this illness. There are so many of us that need your support!


In biblical times, the awareness of people on this matter appears to have been superior to today.

Leviticus, Chapter 14: 39 - 47

"On the seventh day the priest shall return to inspect the house. If the mildew has spread on the walls, he is to order that the contaminated stones be torn out and thrown into an unclean place outside the town. If the mildew reappears in the house after the stones have been torn out and the house is scraped and plastered, it is a destructive mildew and the house is unclean. It must be torn down - its stones, timbers and all the plaster - and taken out of town."

Leviticus 14:45

A house desecrated by mildew, mold, or fungus would be a defiled place to live in, so dramatic measures had to be taken

My first and utmost passions are my children and grand children.

I currently have a strong mind set for activism with the many people across the states that have become very sick from toxic indoor molds, etc., whether it be from thier (more...)
